CINCINNATI -- The Port Authority of Greater Cincinnati aims to shore up its South Mill Creek Corridor development with the purchase of the old Hudepohl Brewery.
Port Authority officials said they purchased the old brewery at 801 W. Sixth Street for $400,000. The organization also bought an adjacent building at 840 W. Fifth St. for $250,000.
Combined, the two buildings will make up about 2.7 acres of developable space.
Officials said the buildings must be analyzed for structural stability. The Port Authority said it has not determined whether it will repair and renovate the buildings or tear the buildings down yet.
Plans are still being drawn and debated on what sort of development will go in at the site.
Officials said the buildings will be part of the South Mill Creek Corridor and could suppose the future industrial hub.
The overall area is made up of more than 1,000 acres of former industrial space in Queensgate and Camp Washington.
